Battle of Mohács

The Battle of Mohács (Hungarian: mohácsi csata or mohácsi vész, Turkish: Mohaç savaşı or Mohaç meydan savaşı) was fought on August 29, 1526 near Mohács, Hungary.

In the battle, forces of the Kingdom of Hungary led by King Louis II of Hungary and Bohemia were defeated by forces of the Ottoman Empire led by Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent.

The Ottoman victory led to the partition of Hungary for several decades between the Ottoman Empire, the Habsburg Monarchy of Austria, and the Principality of Transylvania. The death of Louis II as he fled the battle marked the end of the Jagiellon dynasty, whose dynastic claims were absorbed by the Habsburgs via the marriage of Louis's sister.
